Re: z32tt vs dodge srt4

I am glad I am not the only one that smelled that. Who knew that the worlds fastest Z was in Mexico?

For all you calling me BS. In fact two of those cars are now in the high 6's.
Show me where I posted I had the fastest Zed in the world. Last year I was ranked 3rd with a best time of 7.88 sec. This year I'm not ranked as been taking of other things and not taking the time. The next time you call me BS, I'll *insert hollow threat here*
If you can read you'll notice that the first two cars in the 2003 Players list are in PRO IMPORT class

http://z32racing.50megs.com/Z/_drag_...rag_lists.html

Now for your claim that SGP has one of the fastest Zed's, it's a good one but no prize today. Here's a NA that runs in the 9's when this was written he was running in the 10's

Re: z32tt vs dodge srt4

come down playboy! when this thread started we were all talking about street racing. so thats why i said that i have never heard of a car running 7 seconds in a 1/4 mile. and i'm still talking about street racing! in another words a daily driver. you were talking about drag racing but what i meant was that SGP has the fastest daily driver. know thats what i'm talking about! a car that you can drive when ever you want and take on anybody anytime anyday of the week.

i meant no disrespect but it seems like we were talking about two diferent things.

OK so those are Z's right. . .? They have a motor resembling a Z and the lines look like a Z, but that is not a Z. I guess if that is a Z then civics are better then Z's right? I mean Steph ran a 6.7 in his AEM civc.(sarcasm for those who think I am serious) All out drag cars are not the meassure of a great car.

What series is Pro-Import in? Is that even a class still?

Sorry Charlie I have one of those cars and it has the original body and doors that work and a few carbon parts, the engine is a VG30DE. It don't have A/C and the last time I looked the Cruise Control was missing. Your the one talking shit about me. Bring on your 6.7 Civic's. Seems they never show up for the Nationals. Whatever drag cars are a measure of don't be putting crap on me. As for which sactioning body has Pro Import class, try IDRC, NHRA and NIRA. I hear all these magic numbers but non can back it up with any major event win. Many tracks pad the times to draw a crowd, but never at the Nationals. Thats why these magical rockets never show up for the Nationals. Besides you have to earn a spot in the Nationals, you just don't show up claiming you have a fast car. Rules are setup by the sactioning bodys for classes and mfg. of a car. Their main intress is safety, so in the higher speed class's because of the speed are allowed to remove the interiors to place roll cages in them. In these class's a drag chute is required to aid in stopping. Last year my car was #3 in the nation and I earned that spot, and not by doing some promo for any track to boost attendence. I have a car in the National HotRod Museum. It earned that spot.That's why most racing body's require a backup run within a certain time limit when World records or records are being established.
This car my friend set 6 World FIA records, broke more than 50 track records, Won 1st place in the Oakland Roadster Show as the Worlds most beautiful dragster, and now sits in a museum. You earn these spots and not by doing commericals or promo's for some company selling hedders or nitrous kits, you earn these spots by winning. It's an insult when someone who hasn't payed their dues tell's me my car isn't a Zed, only looks like one.

It was, I gave it by request to Wally Parks when I went to Korea, knowing it would be outdated when I got back, and my Dad didn't want to store it in his garage. Ed and his brother Dick? and a guy Butler, don't remember the names I'll have to go and see if I can find out the names, built it and I owned it and drove it for 3 years then gave it to the 3 guys when I went into flight training and they run it for a year and wanted to put it in my Dad's garage. He said no way so I had Ed Cortipassi (sp) give it to the museum. My sister downloaded that picture for me for my birthday and it almost made me cry. That was the first time i'd seen the car for 48 years. She got the picture in the National Hotrod mag. story about cars from the past.
